Church Basement Ladies
Ashe County Little Theatre presents the Church Basement Ladies August 25-27 at the Ashe Civic Center.
A celebration of the church basement kitchen and the women who work there, Church Basement Ladies is a musical comedy featuring four distinct characters and their relationships as they organize the food and solve the problems of a rural Minnesota church about to undergo changes in 1965. From the elderly matriarch of the kitchen to the young bride-to-be learning the proper order of things, we see them handle a record breaking Christmas dinner, the funeral of a dear friend, a Hawaiian Easter fundraiser, and a steaming hot July wedding. They stave off potential disasters, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the Pastor on course while thoroughly enjoying, (and tolerating) each other as the true backbone of the church. Funny and down to earth, audiences will recognize these ladies as they witness the church year unfold from below the house of God.
Tickets are $16 adults and $5students and may be purchase by calling 336-846-2787 or at the Ashe Arts Center.
